Area students are heading back to the virtual classroom this morning. Districts across the area are welcoming students back virtually for at least a week before a possible return to in person instruction. Those starting back today include Hardin, Grayson, LaRue, Breckinridge, and Elizabethtown Independent. Area leaders all brought up the same reason as to why schools are going virtual to start off. Districts are hoping that the period will give any new cases of the virus the time to run its course. Meade County Schools, however, will start back tomorrow, January 5th.
